Walt and family, We are both so sorry for your loss and we will miss Joan very much. In the short amount of time we were blessed to have know Joan, you both continue to hold a special place in our hearts. Listening to all the stories of travels, bowling and raising 5 boys were priceless. Walt hopefully we'll see you soon out at the Sheen's, until then our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3,4 states "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you a new hope.

I am sorry to read of the passing of your dear love one; please accept my deepest sympathy. Losing a love one in death is the most painful experience a family will ever have to cope with, because it was never part of God's plans for mankind. It was the penalty for disobedience.-Genesis 2:16,17. God loves us so much that HE created us with the desire to live forever, not to die.-Ecclesiastes 3:11. But HE made arrangement to redeem us from death, a resurrection(Acts 24:15) when Jesus with the aid of God's holy spirit, raises all those who have fallen asleep in death, back to life with the prospect of eternal life on the paradise earth.-John 5:28,29. Just imagine the time when God turns your pain into joy when HE grants his son, Jesus Christ the power of His holy spirit, to raise all those who are sleeping in death, back to life with the prospect of eternal life on the paradise earth; being reunited with their families.-John 11:11-44;Acts 24:15; Luke 23:43. Until this wonderful blessing take place; may your family find peace and comfort in God's love.-I John 4:8; Isaiah 66:13.

So sorry to hear about Mrs. Mussler. I did not know her but do know her son Scott. He is a dear friend of my brother John West and our family. I hope he handles his loss as well as he can. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Dear Walt, Dennis, Scott, Kevin,Keith and Eric,

No matter what, one is never ready to say goodbye to a loved wife and mother. I am so sorry for your loss and that of all of us who knew her and cared deeply for her as well. Although we have lost touch in recent years, the fond memories from happy times with all of you remain. Joan-- and all of you who comprised her family-- will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days to come. I am sorry but did not know she was ill-- then got this sad news.

I read with sadness of the loss of Joan. My heart goes out to the family over your loss. May God grant you comfort and peace during this difficult time. Galatians 1:3. Never forget that you can lean on your Heavenly Father for support. He is a comforter of all those who mourn. In His Word the Bible, He tells us to throw all our anxiety upon Him, because He cares for us, 1Peter 5:7. Isaiah 41:10. He also tells us of a brighter future when our loved ones will awake from their restful sleep to enjoy life in paradise. John 11:11; John 6:40; Revelation 21:3, 4. Many are finding solace in this promise. I pray that you will also. Heartfelt prayers are with you.
